Episode 60 - Research Grab Bag V: Curse of Grab Bag

It's our most popular episode type: Grab bag! And by popular, I mean popular to us because we get to read whatever articles we want to! This week, Rob sits down at the ol' baby grand and plays a tune about stimulus equivalence, Diana neutrally praises the effort, and Jackie eats all the poison we left on the floor.  Perhaps our most disjointed episode to date.

Episode 36 - Research Grab Bag III: The Grab Baginning

Every 12 episodes, our hosts choose articles from the research grab bag.  And what a melange of delightful topics are discovered this week.  We'll be reviewing research on infant vocalizations and imitations with Jackie, whether Daniel Tiger can teach children with autism to eat new foods and follow instructions with Rob, and which fun motor activity for children with autism may lead to the best on-task behavior with Diana.  No topic is off-limits when it's a grab bag!
